...or others welcome, too, of course. We're shooting for something short that ends up at a coffee shop. Cultiva would be my first choice as a destination, but I rode by yesterday morning to take note of their hours: Monday through friday, 7 to noon, 9 to 5 on Saturday, closed Sunday. He's more of a roaster than a storefront-shop, so I guess that makes sense, but Sunday would obviously be out.
My second choice(s) would be places that serve Cultiva coffee, which I think are The Cup and Jones coffee, and they're both closed on Sundays, too.
If we're going to do Sunday, downtown places that are open are the Coffee House and the Mill for sure, and Coffee Connection close to 27th and Randolph opens at 8 or 9, too. If we do Saturday and plan to run a little later to catch these open-at-9 places, the options go way up.
If anyone has any preferences, suggestions are certainly welcome. No particular route in mind yet, either. I'd be willing to meet/start pretty much anywhere and get a few more miles in on the way to meet-up, so whatever would be preferred by folks who aren't up to higher mileage yet sounds fine for a meeting place.
